Bible Reading: 1 John 1:5-9
Sunday 25 September 2016
The other day I was working on my computer. On my desktop screen there is a picture of a rubbish bin. When I no longer need a document saved on my computer, I drag it to the rubbish bin and then I would empty it. It is then gone!
This reminded me that I have some rubbish in my heart. Verse 8 of our Bible Reading says, “If we say that we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” I know that I have sin in my life, and God knows, too.
Sin makes me dirty. God wants me to be clean and holy. I know sin is bad and that I need to depend on God to remove it from my life. That’s why I am so glad God forgives me. Verse 9 assures me of God’s promise to forgive me. I have memorised that verse, and I repeat it every day.
Take time today to think about the sin in your life. Ask God to forgive those sins and help you live closer to Him. —PD
1 John 1:9 “But if we confess (admit) our sins, then God will forgive our sins. We can trust God to do this. God does what is right. God will make us clean from all the wrong things we have done.”
PRAYER: God, I confess my sins to You. Thank You for giving me a clean heart. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
